Bermuda Rugby Football Union and the Bermuda Tourism Authority have teamed up to launch a new international Sevens competition to be held on the Island in March.

The 2016 Ariel Re Bermuda Sevens will take place at the National Sports Centre, and organisers hope to attract some of the best college and high school teams in the United States.

Pool matches will be played on Friday, March 18 and the championship matches the following day for a tournament that the BRFU hope will include seven divisions.

The Bermuda national XV team are also hoping to play a high level conference or all-star side as they build up to their Nacra Championship games against Cayman Islands and Mexico later in the year.
